Body cameras for BRPD put off another month
BATON ROUGE - Metro Council members put on hold any decisions Wednesday night about requiring Baton Rouge Police to use body cameras.
The council deferred a decision for 30 days. It will be back on the agenda for their May 27th meeting.
Council member C. Denise Marcelle said Wednesday night she's working on an ordinance she hopes to pair with the body camera decision in time for that meeting.
Marcelle also said money has been released already for a pilot program which would give Baton Rouge Police 100 body cameras. That program carries a price tag of $100,000.
